What Matters Most in the Terravita REALTOR you Choose

team-300x226Not all REALTORS are the same and being successful in real estate has many complex components.  When you hire someone to represent you in the sale of your Terravita home, you really are looking for someone who will take the care, the time and energy to treat your home sale as if it were their own.  We believe you hire us to market your home and all of its amenities and benefits to as wide an audience as we can possibly reach through ALL of our resources.  Through the Multiple List System (MLS), print ad and truly, the “world wide web”, we can reach an infinite number of Buyers and Agents.  And if we do our job correctly, which is to market-blitz your home, chances are, we will not be the one to bring you the offer.  What does that matter as long as it sells?  It matters a lot.  The wider the audience the more probable you will sell your home for the highest amount possible in the fewest days and with the least amount of hassle.

There are approximately 40,000  REALTOR-members in Arizona Association of REALTORS, with 8,200  Scottsdale Area REALTOR Association members. These numbers demonstrate that the odds are in the favor of a cooperative agent bringing us the offer, along with a possibility of getting multiple offers resulting in a potential sales price above listed price. We lose that edge if we don’t use those resources.

One of the first Real Estate lessons I learned from watching others, is what it takes to be an exceptional agent.  People like working with people they know, or have been referred to, who have good communications skills and have developed good relationships.  That not only applies to the Seller, in making their REALTOR choice, but to a Buyer Agent in their comfort level in the professionalism of the Listing Agent.  REALTOR reputation matters.  And I will attest that our Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS has a great reputation for professionalism in the valley. What matters is understanding that we sell your home three times during the process.   We sell your home and our reputation to fellow REALTORS to make them comfortable to show your home to their clients.  We sell your home to the Buyer to give them the comfort level to make an offer and if a loan is needed by the Buyer, we sell your home to the appraiser to support the value in the purchase price.  If you would like to know more about our Certified Wiser Home strategy, please email or call me.

So what matters most to us, probably matters most to you in both business and personal interactions.  It is creating partnerships in all facets of the transaction where good communications skills and open dialogue are born of a commitment to mutual respect.
